Daniel 10:18 Meaning and Commentary

Daniel 10:18

Then there came again and touched me one like the appearance
of a man
Or one like a man again touched him; the same that touched him before, ( Daniel 10:16 ) , perhaps Gabriel, since he uses the same language in the following verse as he does ( Daniel 10:11 ) : and he strengthened me;
both in body and mind, by his free and familiar conversation with him, and the comfortable words he spoke to him, a divine power accompanying them for that purpose.

Daniel 10:18 In-Context

16 Then someone who looked like a man touched my lips. I opened my mouth. I began to speak to the one who was standing in front of me. I said, "My master, I'm greatly troubled because of the vision I've seen. And I'm helpless.
17 How can I talk with you? I feel very weak. In fact, I can hardly breathe."
18 The one who looked like a man touched me again. He gave me strength.
19 "Do not be afraid," he said. "You are highly respected. May peace be with you! Be strong now. Be strong." When he spoke to me, I became stronger. I said, "Speak, my master. You have given me strength."
20 So he said, "Do you know why I have come to you? Soon I will return to fight against the prince of Persia. When I go, the prince of Greece will come.
